Zak Noyle is an island boy who has spent most his life in the water – at home in the Pacific Ocean. It is this lifelong love of the sea that prompted him to take up surf photography, to share with others an insider’s view, seldom seen, of the beauty and raw power of the world’s most significant ocean environment.
Tutored and encouraged by his father, seasoned commercial photographer Ric Noyle, Zak began in earnest at the age of 14 – taking surf photos of friends. Soon after, his work was being published in local, national and international surfing magazines and website. His images have been published in National Geographic, Surfer Magazine, London Times and ESPN.
In 2010, he was selected as one of the international sport photographers whose work was showcased at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, a cultural destination dedicated to exhibiting photography by some of the world’s most renowned and emerging photographic talents.
